Influencing Public Policy and the Practice of Business

The Initiative on Global Markets aims to organize Booth faculty efforts to influence public policy and the practice of business around the world. By hosting expert panels, visiting thought leaders, and conferences, we raise the impact of Booth research, catalyze new research ideas, and enrich the Booth community.
